Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name]
I noticed you’re looking for a [Position Title] on [Website Name], and I’m sure I’m an exact fit for the role. Visual art is my life, and nothing fulfills me more than motivating the next generation of creatives by sharing my passion with young learners in K-8 classrooms.
My love for teaching art is backed by formal training across various creative mediums and incredible classroom results. I have extensive experience developing interactive art curricula that synchronize art history and various traditional and digital disciplines — photography, videography, graphic design, drawing, painting, and printmaking, to name a few — and I adapt my lesson plans to accommodate the diverse needs of different learning styles.
Here are some key achievements from my 8+ years of teaching art:
- At Tuscaloosa Middle School Magnet, my current job, I’ve reached 100% of my curriculum targets each year
- My students won multiple awards from the County Art Show, an extracurricular contest I encouraged them to enter
- Under my instruction, 93% of my 80+ K-8 students at Minor High School passed a cognitive drawing rubric with 2 years of growth
I believe it’s my job to foster relationships with my students so I can integrate their interests with my lesson plans. My goal is to inspire students to apply the information and techniques they learn in my class to sharing their unique life perspectives.
After researching your organization, I’m confident that my vision for an ideal middle school art class environment aligns perfectly with yours. I’m eagerly anticipating the chance to discuss how I’d realize that vision in your open [Position Title] position. Please contact me at (123) 456-7890 or firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience.
